Do cervical mucus changes signal ovulation date?

Do cervical mucus changes signal ovulation date?

Roughly...: Around the time of ovulation, the amount of cervical mucus increases and it becomes more thin, clear, watery and elastic in response to estrogen produced in the body.

Taking BCP's (the active ingredients of Plan B) should not shift time of ovulation. Simple way to monitor ovulation timing is to do basal body temperature curve. Get good thermometer and graph paper.

If my due date is nov22nd conception date march1st and ovulation february 22nd what's an estimate date of when sexual intercourse took place?

No telling: Sperm live inside the female reproductive tract for up to 7 or more days; however, when trying to get pregnant you should not count on sperm more than 2-3 days. The egg is only viable for about 12-24 hours after ovulation. Therefore, conception is rare if sex occurs after ovulation. I hope this info helps you understand how your conception may have occurred. Best wishes. ...Read more

Does fertilization finish before the conceive date of pregnancy?

Does fertilization finish before the conceive date of pregnancy?

Yes: Fertilization is conception. Therefore, a woman whose egg has finished being fertilized has finished conceiving. She has a one-celled "baby" which is just a fertilized egg. It splits into 2 cells, then 4 cells, then 8 cells, etc... No woman knows exactly when she conceives, in a natural pregnancy. How would she know? She can neither see it or feel it. Conception dates are therefore only estimates. ...Read more

On19th day of 28—29day menstrual cycle.. Cervical mucus is hostile for sperm isn't it due to progesterone hormone??

On19th day of 28—29day menstrual cycle.. Cervical mucus is hostile for sperm isn't it due to progesterone hormone??

You are correct: That is theoretically so BUT if that excuse is used as a reason why you should have unprotected sex, you may be surprised. If she is ovulating on day 15 and you are having sex on day 19, you may be surprised to learn of the speed at which sperm swims and how long an egg can survive and how delayed ovulation could actually be. I wouldn't chance it. ...Read more
